In this autobiography that takes up where his best-selling »Palimpsest« left off, novelist, essayist, critic and controversialist Vidal reflects on his remarkable life. Writing from his desks in Ravello and Hollywood Hills, Vidal travels in his memory through the arenas of literature, television, film, theater, politics, and international society where he has cut a wide swath, recounting achievements and defeats, friends and enemies made (and sometimes lost.) From encounters with, among others, Jack and Jacqueline Kennedy, Tennessee Williams, Eleanor Roosevelt, Orson Wells, Johnny Carson, and Francis Ford Coppola, to the mournful passing of his longtime partner, Howard Auster, Vidal always steers his narrative with grace and flair.
